Now that the dust has settled on the Prop 8 case, HBO plans to make a documentary about it. Deadline Hollywood reports:
Ben Cotner and Ryan White are directing the pic which is currently in production by HBO Documentary Films. It tells the story of the people behind the historic Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage. “For the past five years, Cotner and White have had exclusive access to the work of the powerhouse legal team led by Ted Olson and David Boies as well as the four plaintiffs in the case”, Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming said today in a statement. The untitled feature will be completed by the end of this year for debut on the network in 2014.
Part of me doesn’t want to re-live this sordid chapter in California history, but part of me wants to see it now that I know the happy ending. Whatcha all think?
